Technicolor Library

Technicolor Library - Austin, Texas

Technicolor Library – Austin, Texas

Austin’s new Central Public Library is lit with LEDs which continuously change color. I especially like this combination. The library sign here is the same one I featured earlier this year. Today’s photo gives you some context and a view of the main entrance.

It’s decidedly modern as there are no stone columns and faux Greek temples to pay homage to. And like many modern buildings, it’s highly asymmetrical as you can see from the rear of the building. The materials fit Austin and I think the design has a presence along Shoal Creek, anchoring this part of town.

If you are wondering about the long vertical format, it is what I call a vertical Cinematic, where I pulled in detail from the top and bottom from the original RAW file. I first showcased this crop earlier this month from the San Jose Airport (here and here). Those photos, however, were muted monochromes and lacked the visual punch of today’s image.
